What is the special exhibition "musical box Theater in Mottoni"?

[Holding period] Saturday, September 12, 2020-Sunday, December 27

The work of Karakuri puppeteer Muttoni will be performed in collaboration with the collection of the Rokko International Musical Box Museum.

Muttoni is a fusion of pre-programmed doll movements, music, and light effects, and sometimes the author himself adds words to create the world of his work. In this exhibition, music, which is an important element of the work, will be performed by the performance of mechanical instruments such as antique musical box owned by the museum. As a result, the interpretation of works by the museum's collection will be added to Muttoni's works, expressing new possibilities for the works.
